NHL: Minnesota 3, Detroit 2

Feb. 17, 2013 at 8:50 PM

ST. PAUL, Minn., Feb. 17 (UPI) -- Jason Zucker and Torrey Mitchell scored 32 seconds apart in the second period Sunday, rallying the Minnesota Wild to a 3-2 win over Detroit.

Trailing 2-0 in the middle frame, Minnesota began its comeback when Dany Heatley tallied on a slap shot 9:35 into the period.

Zucker tied the score less than 4 minutes later with his first career goal -- an unassisted tally -- and Mitchell quickly followed with a backhander after a face-off for the decisive score.

Darcy Kuemper earned his first NHL victory, turning aside 29-of-31 shots for the Wild, who snapped a two-game skid.

Damien Brunner and Pavel Datsyuk scored and Petr Mrazek -- playing in his second career game -- made 21 stops for the Red Wings.
